A year after President Biden took office, illegal aliens continued to flow through the southern US border with little to no verification. Last month, Customs and Border Protection recorded 153,941 migrant interactions along the southern US border. There were roughly 20,000 fewer interactions at the border in December 178,840. The alarming numbers are nearly double the number of interactions reported in January 2021, 78,414.
In December, US Customs and Border Protection faced a new high of 178,840 illegal immigrants along the southern border. The second highest arrest figure for December was around 73,994 migrants captured the year before. The United States has already reported over half a million southwest border interactions just three months into the fiscal year 2022. At least 51,624 family units were among the approximately 179,000 migrants detected in December.
Since late February, illegal apprehensions along the southern US border have increased dramatically, with over 100,000 apprehensions per month presently. The vast majority of these migrants were most likely told to report to Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices around the country, but many will fail to do so. By 2022, border apprehensions are likely to reach 2 million. It will surpass the already-record-breaking 1.7 million arrests made in the fiscal year 2021.
The White House has been deafeningly silent on the failings of the Biden Administration that contributed to the current border catastrophe. As the year progresses, the Administration also has no clear plan to stem the tide of rising migration and humanitarian issues at the border. The White House’s deliberate disregard of the issues that open borders bring damages to Democrat support among Hispanics.
According to polls, most Americans, including most Hispanics, disapprove of President Biden’s handling of the border situation. At least 56 percent of registered voters believe Republicans, who control the House, Senate, and White House, would “perform a better job on border security” than Democrats.
